I love Vancouver. People close to me know that I have always been deeply passionate about our city and the issues that impact all of us. I grew up here and believe my four boys should have the opportunity to live and eventually raise their families here. I believe this generation, and future generations, should be able to afford to live, work and thrive in our amazing city.

But as we all know, Vancouver is at a crossroads right now. In 2018, I became tired of talking to people who told me they were leaving our city. They were leaving because they either could not afford housing, job opportunities or businesses were being hurt and / or Vancouver was losing its buzz. My fear was that my family, friends, neighbours and co-workers would not be able to call Vancouver home in the not so distant future.

Last time we came up short, but the last three years have proven that politics as usual doesn’t work.

This time will be different.

This time we’ll create a movement representing all of Vancouver. This time we’ll build a better city, together.

What’s Important to Me

  • Building a more affordable, livable, and safer city for everyone
  • Attracting good jobs that allow people to invest in their neighbourhoods
  • Building on Vancouver’s legacy as a sustainable, inclusive, and vibrant city

This isn’t about Right or Left politics, people are more complicated than that. We need to do what makes sense.
